Beyond Recycling - the circular games start now!

General description

Ever wondered how to eat more Oreos without having to peel a double plastic packaging?

Over consumption enhances climate change and we, French BESTies from Nancy, embark on a quest to bring that down! On this french adventure, you’ll get knowledge and discuss sustainable processes and designs, because the world’s problems and sustainable future are in our hands, and it is our responsibility to tackle them now. Let’s discuss together how to go from the “take-make-dispose” linear approach towards a more sustainable one, with a circular model.

Aside from this combat, you’ll get to stroll through the most beautiful square in Europe and visit the capital city of the Dukedoms of Lorraine. That’s without mentioning the smell of magnificent croissants waiting for you while exploring each square of our city. But most importantly, you will experience all the elements of the French way of living: amazing food (cheese, wine, bread, yes eventually snails and others), lot’s of coffee,”la bise”, and all the other hidden mysteries of our culture.
